Center faculty member Dr. Bryant Boutwell recently released his latest book, John P. McGovern, MD: A Lifetime of Stories. The book serves to honor longtime friend and colleague of Boutwell, Dr. John P. McGovern, from whom the Center takes its name. The biography shares stories of a man whose name is featured on many buildings, scholarships, professorships, awards, and more. Although Dr. McGovern passed away in 2007, he lives on through the stories shared in the book. The book was published by Texas A & M University Press and is available in bookstores everywhere. Proceeds from book sales will go to support the Bryant Boutwell, DrPH and John P. McGovern, MD, Medical Student Scholarship Fund at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. Since its establishment in 2003, more than $134,000 has been raised to assist 27 medical students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
